Sports Camp

Some how I ended up directing a kid's Sports Camp this year. This is strange because I never really played sports growing up, don't have any favorite teams, and really get quite bored watching games (yes...football, basketball...you name it.)
So, anyway, I ended up...by default, the director of a Sports Camp. It was actually really fun to see kids, ages 6-12, running around, playing soccer, basketball and cheer leading.
I have always disliked cheerleaders. I think it started in High School, because most of my girlfriends were 'Majorettes'...which were like the 'dance-team'. The Majorettes always disliked the cheerleaders...and thus, since I was friends with them, their dislike rubbed off on me.
But, this week my like for cheer leading was reborn when I saw a 6 year old performing a cheer about burritos. "Hey burrito, hey, hey, burrito!"
Anyway, you just never know how God will use your talents, do you? Someone who is totally unaware of sports ends up directing a camp for 40+ sporty-kids....God is good and gives us grace in our shortcomings....always!

Just for Tina

Here is a blog for my friend Tina who has 'inspired' me to continue blogging.
Seriously, there hasn't been too much to blog about lately. Life is somewhat boring and mundane...I'm not afraid to say it.
I sort of feel like a flowering plant being pruned way back right now, during the winter. God is pruning me back...but I am not sure exactly when the buds are coming back.
I will continue to try to blog about this...but that's it for now folks.

28 Years old

I turn 28 years old today. I don't why that is a defining year, but when I was was younger I always thought 28 was the year that:
1. Women were most beautiful- There was a maturity about women at that age, but they hadn't started getting a lot of gray hair and wrinkles yet. I imagined myself as a beautiful and distinguished 28 year old. The truth of the matter, is that I do have quite a few gray hairs and I don't feel any bit more beautiful today, than I did yesterday.
2. I assumed that by 28 one will have established their selves in an exciting and successful career. The truth is my thoughts of what my career would be are far different from what has actually occurred but I am happier than I probably ever would have been.
3. I thought 28 was the perfect time in one's life to start having children. The truth is that having children is very much out of our control. We cannot set a time or date on when we would like to have them.
Because of these three 'assumptions' 28 was always a big year for me. We will see what God has in store.
